obsolete OSS interface messages

RealPlayer does have an option to select the Audio Driver being used. 
Unfortunately, OSS is the only choice. My cross-fade plugin in XMMS uses 
ALSA, so I know it's working..

Mozilla has no audio options, aside from which helper application to use 
for specific audio formats.  I'm wondering if the mozilla messages are 
just because of realplayer being launched from mozilla?

Any other ideas - anyone?
